How common are fork lift accidents? How many are there in a year?

In the year 2019 there were 1300 accidents involving forklift trucks in the UK which led to hospitalisation of a person. 57% of these were injuries to pedestrians. To put it another way that's five serious, injury accidents every day.

Over the last two years reportable RIDDOR reports numbered 5,700 but, of course, these include near misses.
